A great early German bronze.


The exceptionally crafted double inkwell is a true gem and we are sure that it makes the hearts of our gnomes enthusiasts beat faster.


The Germans call this style ‘Gründerzeit’ and it was very popular in Europe around 1880, especially such pieces, other applied arts and furniture.

A strong solid bronze gnome with a long beard holds the object. The mystical little people are very popular among collectors and we also have a collection of outstanding Vienna Bronze gnomes and are still looking for others which are hard to find. 





ca. 5 “ (12.5 cm) tall, 10 1/4 “ (26 cm) wide and 9 3/4 “ (24.5 cm) deep


Good with a fine aged patina. No restoration, no repairs, no touch ups! Please do not forget that you are buying a used item that always may show some traces of wear!


Ca. 1880
